Creative Engagements

Johnny and Stephanie ~ Engagements: Dallas, TX

This session was so much fun! For starters, I got to shoot my friend Stephanie and meet the love in her life, Johnny. I love getting to capture such a sweet and happy time in a friend's life.

A week before our session, Steph asked me if I would be interested in shooting a neon paint fight. Umm YEAH! I was so excited and this is a great example of just having fun with your session. They are getting married in July and I cannot wait! You must check back to see some neon surprises from the big day as well;)

Here are my favorites from the day. The first half was on a roof in downtown Dallas…amazing!

Shelley and Jake ~ Engagements: Fort Worth, TX

So excited to shoot Shelley and Jake's wedding in the spring! I had a blast running around downtown with them. They are so comfortable with each other and they were quick reminders of why I love engagement sessions! So much excitement and joy. Jake is a firefighter and they were able to get a firetruck from his old district to come and let us take pictures. It was great and added a personal touch! 

PS. This was a blind date gone right!:)

Bailie and Clint ~ Engagements: Abilene, TX

Bailie and Clint are the cutest! They did such a good job at our session and were willing to do anything:) It was very cloudy and when the sun would pop out and I would have them run in front of it so we could get some good lighting:) It was comical. Overall, great day and one great couple! 

Jessica ~ Senior: Dallas, TX

Jessica is graduating from A&M University this May and needed some pictures for announcements. The day we picked happened to be extremely windy and I thought I was back in Lubbock for a second;) She was a trooper though and on a good note, she just got engaged! So I snapped a few of her and her fiance!:) So exciting!!

Congratulations on everything!
